Wednesday evening

In my talk with A., he told me about stuff in the comments on The Backlot.  People there are doing the kind of thing that makes GleekTO rant.  It's the tin-hatters again, but with anonymous blind items on a website, apparently.  I don't even want to read the comments on The Backlot, but A. read it to me.  It was the usual.  I'd generally much rather talk about characters than actors.  I have my opinions, which are what GleekTO says are the majority opinions.  I'll include the thought that I'm happy the actors have significant others, but aside from what they say publicly or who they make public appearances with, they should be able to keep their personal lives private.

I will also give my opinion on one thing that an actor has publicly commented about.  There are those who say that Darren Criss only says what his "handlers" tell him to.  He said (wish I could find the quote) that he said what he wanted to.  That idea, anyway.  Considering some of the things he says, I totally believe that.  That's not someone who's being controlled.  My take on it, anyway.  I agree with a lot of the things he says, but have my moments of thinking, "Did he actually say that?" on some of what he says.  And those were interview quotes that were publicly recorded.

The actors' work has given me many hours of entertainment, and I wish them well.  Some of their public comments are pretty entertaining, too, in my opinion.

Thursday

I don't even really remember when I slept last night.  I think I had a big belated midnight snack around 1:30 a.m. and went to bed at 2:00 a.m.  I got up at 10:00 a.m. or so.

All my disrupted sleep pattern journaling here will not actually get used, but I did see a sleep doctor today who wants me to keep a graph journal of my sleep patterns.  I forgot to get the graph on my way out of the office, so perhaps more on that tomorrow if I pick it up then.  I said I'd always stayed up late at night.  He said to go to bed at 2:00 a.m. and get up at 10:00 a.m., but to definitely get up at 10:00 a.m. no matter what.  We'll see how that goes.  It was very different from all the other advice I'd been given.

I finished up an editing job before I went to see the sleep doctor.

I talked to S.M. a couple of times.  There's a speaker about plants who's also selling plants in [semi-local town] on Saturday.  I said I'd probably be in New Jersey.

I went to the grocery store.

The Glee episode "The Quarterback" is on tonight.  I expect there will be much spiraling on Tumblr.  I may try to limit the amount I'm on Tumblr.  I'll post how I feel about the episode.

Rainjoy updated "Grey."  It was quite a depressing chapter.  She says that the rest will be happier, and she promises happy endings.

I finished reading "Go Your Own Way," which I'd been reading over the last couple of days.  I really need to read something cheerful, though "Go Your Own Way" had a happy ending.

TV watching -- "The Quarterback"

That was sad.  The characters were telling each other that Finn wasn't prejudiced, when he had been homophobic.  But they chose to remember him as not having been prejudiced.  The characters were all grieving.  They dealt in their own ways.  Kurt didn't seem to have a particular mystical association with death this episode, but there was a lot of Kurt in the episode.  (new paragraph) Callie said he had gone from being a "psychopomp-in-training," as she calls him, to being a psychopomp.  So there are some meta-writers who keep up the association of Kurt and death.
